Cenci obviously contracts out with other manufactures for his wears. I purchased a cashmere tweed jacket, actually made by Cantarelli. The hand on the cashmere is very nice, it's fully canvassed (as to be expected given the retail price was >2K). Other than that I was not very impressed with the worksmanship of the jacket.
-ALL the buttonholes were machine sewn
-lapel button hole was semi-cut
-Other than the shanks on the buttons, I really cannot see any other visible hand work
-Collar was machine sewn/attached, and most likely machine padded
All in all still not bad for the price I paid, but objectively I'd say it's about quality of entry level Italian wears like Canali.
